Mission + Activities
The AFC Growth Fund seeks to empower families, especially lower-income families, with the freedom to choose the best K-12 education for their children. AFC Growth Fund works in states across America to advance our mission. Our headquarters are in Washington, D.C., with state-based staff located in regional offices around the country.
We believe choice, innovation and entrepreneurism will revolutionize an antiquated K-12 system into a 21st century model where all children, especially lower-income children, have access to a quality education whether it be at a public school, private school, public charter school, virtual learning, home school or a blend of learning environments.
The American Federation for Children is a 501(c)(4) organization that does lobbying and grassroots advocacy work in the states and Washington, D.C. which is affiliated with the American Federation for Children Action Fund, a political committee that supports and opposes state-level candidates for elected office. AFC works closely with its educational partner, the American Federation for Children Growth Fund, a 501(c)(3) organization, to promote the benefits of—and the need for—school choice, make parents aware of their options, mobilize grassroots support, and ensure private school choice laws work for students.
